Meta Stack Exchange is where users like you discuss bugs, features, and support issues that affect the software powering all 158 Stack Exchange communities.

What is meta?
Here's how it works:
  1. Any Stack Exchange user can ask a question
  2. The community provides support, votes on ideas, and reports bugs
  3. Your voice helps shape the way Stack Exchange operates

I would very much like to be able to ask my question properly, but I do not know how to be "clearer" like @Hank Hoterman told me I should be.

Kindly, could you direct me to a place for beginner questions?

Thank you again and for your time. :)

This question came from our site for professional and enthusiast programmers.

By the way, I'm glad you're willing to learn, even though you don't know how to ask. Some other people, on the other hand, don't even care. – BoltClock's a Unicorn Jan 27 '11 at 23:45
You have not offended us, don't worry. We will have patience with you as long as you are patient with us as well. – jjnguy Jan 27 '11 at 23:49
@Justin 'jjngut' Nelson 4 secs ago many thanks – PRASHANT P Jan 27 '11 at 23:50
@PRASHANT, In a comment, the person's name is the part that is linked. The part that looks like '4 minutes ago' is not part of a person's name. – jjnguy Jan 27 '11 at 23:54
@Justin 'jjnguy' Nelson i made pasting problem i will be more careful – PRASHANT P Jan 27 '11 at 23:56

Definitely kudos for asking about how to ask and willingness to learn! :) – Timwi Jan 28 '11 at 0:12

@PRASHANT, I gotta say, I don't buy it. If you look through my activity history -- admittedly, not an easy task -- you'll see that I'm often the first person to welcome new users to SO/MSO and offer to help them acclimate to our community. But in your case... if you merely had a "pasting problem," how did the 'y' in "jjnguy" become a 't'? And how did you doubly misspell Henk Holterman's name? I do welcome you just as much as anyone else to our sites, but you have to put in at least a little effort on your own. – Pops Jan 29 '11 at 19:38

Some tips:

Be very clear in your title. Make sure your title describes your problem clearly.

In the body of your post, make sure that your question matches your title. Make sure that you only ask one question at a time. Include all of the relevant details, and leave out any details that are not needed.

That's a good place to get started.

You do not have to be perfect with your English. People will help you fix that. However, you do have to be close enough so that people can understand what you are trying to say.

The key part here is the relevant details. The words around can be fixed much more easily than the code sample can. – mmyers Jan 28 '11 at 0:05
i am asking my question again with my friend to translate this time – PRASHANT P Jan 28 '11 at 19:47

Here's a copy of your original question:

c# how to delegate to events

A problem I am having with the events of the c#

some of my variables are not getting

serialized per each entire method invocation.

how do I know where arguments go???

or am I in wrong locations about this!

lately I have many compiler errors

even reinstalling the .net provides no help.....

public static int button21_Click(object me, EventArgs MyArgs)
   button17(me, MyArts);

Thank you,


Here are difficulties I have in trying to understand your question:

some of my variables are not getting serialized per each entire method invocation.

What makes you think that a "variable" should be "serialized" at all, and why "per each entire method invocation"?

This is the first and only mention of "serialization" in the question, but it doesn't fit the title ("delegate to events") and doesn't fit the code sample.

how do I know where arguments go???

I don't understand the question.

lately I have many compiler errors

What compiler error[s], and what code generates those errors? Are you asking how to fix those compiler errors?

even reinstalling the .net provides no help.....

Reinstalling the .net isn't the most likely way to fix compiler errors: a compiler error normally means a problem with your source code.

public static int button21_Click(object me, EventArgs MyArgs)
   button17(me, MyArts);

In what way does this code relate to the rest of the question?

Quoting your original question:

lately I have many compiler errors
even reinstalling the .net provides no help.....

If the compiler shows errors, that means your code is wrong. It doesn't mean the compiler has a problem and you do not need to re-install .NET.
